In the qualitative analysis of Murray (2012), parents are both an affirmative agent of socialization and of social control. While a parent is incarcerated they are either unable to maintain their influence at all towards to their children, or can only act in a restricted capacity. By means of parent are the role models to all children. If a parent is incarcerated it could change the perception of the chid to their parents. Bestowing to The Pew Charitable Trusts (2010), parents who go to prison or jail are unable to provide financially for their children while they are incarcerated, and due to the loss of income and institutionalized stigma that come with being incarcerated, they often have difficulty finding sustainable employment once they
The School-to-Prison Pipeline: A Primer for Social Workers, a study by Susan McCarter (2017), was written to give a summary of the School-to-prison pipeline in an attempt to break down the factors surrounding children being funneled into this path by their respective school systems around the country. The author explains the correlation between the School-to-prison pipeline and its disparate outcomes for students of color, students with disabilities, and students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (p. 54-55). McCarter presents implications for social workers and multiple specific strategies to reduce the detrimental effects of the School-to-prison pipeline. Susan McCarter, PhD, MSW, is an associate professor
Analyzing data from 2011-12 National Survey of Children’s Health, a representative sample of children seventeen and younger, and the study found higher rates of attention deficits, behavioral problems, speech and language delays, and other developmental delays in children of the incarcerated. (At Risk Students; Stress Proliferation Across Generation? Examining the relationship Between Parental Incarceration and childhood Health, 1).

A rights-based approach to children accused of committing offences with a procedure-based framework was represented after the implementation of the Act effective form 1 April 2010 (NPF 2010). The Child Justice Act No 75 of 2008 is still in the foundation phase with regards to infrastructural responses. Although some existing prison facilities were converted to cater to the needs of children, the nature of the building complex and character thereof leaves a bitter reminder of the dark past of our nation. Some new facilities have been developed in recent years but much is still to be learned in the successful handling of children in conflict with the
With the absence of the parents’ presence in the home due to an inability effectively balance work and home life, children could develop an emotional void/absence. Good communicative dialogue between children and their parents where the adults describe their work situation as it relates to the home to create resilient children, could possibly benefit the household. The text describes eldercare as a "family process." Explain this
There are several services that are available for children who witness or are effected by domestic violence including counseling, supervised visitation and exchange, and shelters. There are four types of counseling that are available to children. The first is play therapy which is for children who are not able to talk yet or who are afraid to speak about their experiences. Play therapy allows the child to express themselves and what happened through playing or drawing. The second type of counseling is psychoeducational group therapy by age; this therapy helps teach children about domestic violence to them change their beliefs that the abuse between their parents is their fault.
One day, Regina comes home to find a social worker waiting to speak to her. In the past, Regina and all of her siblings showed great skill in presenting as if everything was fine in the home. But after the beating, Regina has had enough. She admits that her mother is an unstable parent and frequently abusive to all of them. The younger children are forced into one foster home, and Camille and Regina move into a house managed by an Addie and Peter.
1) I became interested in social work after working in a residential treatment facility and witnessing the impact the “system” has on children. I have worked with children who were institutionalized at a young age. They had had several placements ranging from foster homes, group homes, lock down facilities etc., revolving social workers, and broken trust in adults. While working with these children, providing one-on-one care and building rapport, I began to notice the gaps in the system and how they affected these children. With the work I have done providing services to individuals from infancy to adulthood, I have seen the effects of trauma on their life trajectory, if not properly supported.
Have you ever thought about how it feels to be ripped out of the only place that you know as home? To get no explanation of why your parents just did not want you anymore? Not a lot of people think about this. Usually, the only people that do think about this is children that are experiencing or have experienced this problem. The children’s rights website stated that, “On any given day, there are nearly 428,000 children in foster care in the United States.”() All of those children have to be reminded daily that the foster care system has a lot of problems in it.
The case of Mary Ellen Wilson, a young girl abused by her mother then her foster mother, was the first case to shed light on child abuse. Since that case, many laws have passed to ensure the safety and well-being of children in the home. While the child welfare system has come a long way since the case of Mary Ellen Wilson in the 1870’s and the implementation of laws, the child welfare system still remains to be a flawed system. The movie Antwone Fisher depicts a young man forced to deal with his demons from his life as a victim of child abuse while in foster care. This film analysis will discuss the cultural context, discuss the positive and negative aspects of our current child welfare system, and highlighting some of Antowne’s resilient
